Description

John Ek wanted to contribute to the American war effort during World War II.  From his shop in Hamden, Connecticut, Ek built custom knives specifically for soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. He even built a knife for the Commander-in-Chief, American President Franklin Roosevelt.

Americans have carried Ek Commando Knives in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, and countless other locations in between. John Ek’s knives live on today through Ek Commando Knife as a testament to his ideas, skills, and unflinching patriotism.

KA-BAR's third introduction into the John Ek Commando Knife Co. product line is the highly anticipated Model 5. This updated version of the occupational knife with hilt is made from 1095 Cro-Van and features a parkerized bowie blade, textured glass-filled nylon handles and traditional X-head fasteners. A US-made Celcon sheath with retaining strap, self-locking function and multiple tie-down points is also included.

  1. John Ek model 5Review by
    Rating
    I own the original version of this. It's made from 6mm stock, has a big straight guard, and is sand/bead blasted from tip to butt. It has a cord handle (like Striders) and John Ek's trademark HD webbing scabbard. It is one solid fixed-blade. Ka-bar had a lot to live up to. On to this new model 5. Ka-Bar have done John Ek proud. Both the knife and the scabbard are made in the USA. And what a great job they have made of it. Blade - just under 7" including the ricasso. Handle - just under 5.75" including guard. Extended tang - 9mm long. Stock - 3.85mm. Balance just behind the first scale bolt. This model is lighter and faster. The Celcon click-fit scabbard is a very snug fit, and has a drain-port and a HD reversible retaining strap. It has a 2.5" belt loop. I think this is Ka-Bar's best ever scabbard. It offers a perfect fit, and is a little bit stiff when brand new. Well done Ka-Bar. I am very pleased with my purchase. (Posted on )
